Addicks take a look at Mills
Maidstone player-of-the-year Tom Mills has been invited to train with Charlton. The Addicks are one of several clubs to have watched the 19-year-old left-back during Stones’ pre-season campaign. It’s early days but United boss Jay Saunders believes Mills, a product of the club’s youth system, has what it takes to make it in the pro game. He said: "Millsy’s only young and still has a bit to learn but I think he has the quality to cut it at that level. "Charlton want to see if he’s up to their standard and how he’ll fit into their environment. He’s a contracted player, so if he does well and they want him, they’ll have to make an offer." If any offer was made it would be as a development player and we are quite well stocked with them at the moment.
